Drahomira Herrmannova and Petr Knoth have won the Best Poster Award at JCDL 2016 in Newark, USA with their contribution “Semantometrics: Towards fulltext-based research evaluation.” This was a very good timing as the full experimental report on semantometrics commissioned by Jisc was published in this announcement a week prior the conference. 

The CORE team at KMi have also organised a successful 5th International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications (WOSP 2016). The workshop was attended by key people in the area of text and data mining research papers from both Europe and the USA. The workshop featured this year two keynotes. Yuxiao Dong of Notre Dame University gave a talk titled “AMiner: Towards Understanding Big Scholarly Data” and Michael J. Kurtz of Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics presented the "Astrophysics Data System: The Joy of Text”.

At the workshop, Drahomira Herrmannova also presented a joint long paper with Petr Knoth titled: "An Analysis of the Microsoft Academic Graph."

The WOSP workshop was this year sponsored by the OpenMinTeD project in which KMi participates and we invited two speakers on this.  Stelios Piperidis of Athena Research Centre gave a talk on “Making sense of scientific textual content” and Peter Mutschke of GESIS presented a discussed in his talk the "Challenges and potential of text mining in scholarly information retrieval.”
